Romine and the Reds end St. Louis’ streak, Pujols gets hit

Austin Romine hit a two-run homer as the Cincinnati Reds hit Dakota Hudson and beat St. Louis 5-1 Tuesday night, ending the Cardinals’ three-game winning streak.

Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols went 0-for-2 and was hit by a pitch from Justin Dunn that ricocheted off his chest and caught his right forearm in the second inning. Pujols stayed in the game for the NL Central leaders and held onto 694 home runs, two behind Alex Rodriguez for fourth on the all-time list.

Hudson (7-7), who had gone 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in three career starts at Great American Ball Park, gave up five straight hits to start a four-run streak in the third. Romine’s go-ahead line that reached the front row of seats deep in right center field made the score 2-1.

Hudson went 4 2/3 innings, allowing nine hits and five runs with one walk.

Dunn pitched four innings in his fifth start after missing the first half of the season with a right shoulder strain. He allowed just three hits and one run, which came on Tommy Edman’s home run leading off the third, and struck out four.

Derek Law (1-1), promoted from Triple-A Louisville early Tuesday after signing a minor league deal with Cincinnati on Aug. 14, allowed one hit over two innings.
